Best Dressed November 2014

While most of us are covering and wrapping up warm for winter, we can all live vicariously through this month’s best dressed. I always love this time of year on the red carpet as we see some gorgeous gowns to get us excited about the upcoming awards season. Look out for some stunning looks from Kate Hudson, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek.

Chic Nudes and Silver

Molly King, Kate Hudson and Nicole Scherzinger

The Saturday’s star and fashionista Molly King was pictured leaving the Casio Sheen event in Covert Garden, London. Molly had her signature tanned legs on show wearing strappy silver heels and a nude Peter Pan collared, skater skirt dress. Similarly in nude, Kate Hudon stunned at the LACMA Art Film event in a Gucci gown. This is definitely my favourite look from last month. I love the scalloped hem line, gathering on the waist and one shoulder detailing. This is a perfect dress to get us all excited for the upcoming awards season. Nicole Scherzinger walked the red carpet at the Global Gift Foundation in London last month. Nicole wore a metallic Ermanno Scervino midi dress with silver shoes, slicked back hair and a bold lip.

Press Call Looks

Jessica Chastain, Angelina Jolie and Amy Adams

Jessica Chastain looked elegant in emerald as she attended the A Most Violent Year press call in LA. Pairing her capped sleeved over the knee dress with pointed black heels, Jessica kept her hair and makeup natural, opting for a bright pink nail instead. Angelina Jolie wore a beautiful Gucci Premiere full length dress to the Unbroken Sydney premiere. The silk dress boasts a gorgeous lace overlay and neckline. Angelina always get’s it right on the redcarpet. Amy Adams, also attending a press photo call in LA last month kept it neutral in navy. Like Jessica she paired her simple dress with pointed patent heels. A big trend this season.

Street Style

Katie Holmes, Katherine Heigl and Gemma Arterton

Katie Holmes, Katherine Heigl and Gemma Arterton

In NYC last month Katie Holmes attended an event at Apple. Katie kept it casual in blue jeans, a grey wool jumper with printed neck detailing and my least favourite part of the look, red-tan ankle boots. Katerine Heigl looked effortlessly cool as she was papped at the airport. The grey jumper and coat combo is perfectly executed with black jeans and white-grey slip on shoes. Casual-chic at it’s finest. Actress Gemma Arterton battled the British breeze in a gorgeous winter outfit. Wearing a brown heavy woollen over coat, Gemma addeda white shirt under her cable knit jumper. Like Katherine, she also paired her look with black jeans and gorgeous brown Chelsea boots.

Black and White Combos

Selma Hyek, Carrie Underwood and Angelina Jolie

Sama Hayek, Carrie Underwood and Angelina Jolie

Salma Hayek, also attening the LACMA Art and Film event, looked wonderful in a white in (you guessed it), Gucci. This dress looks amazing on Salma, the column style displays her waist to perfection and the embellished neckline which splits off into a halter style is so unusual and beautiful. The silver clutch further adds to the classy look. Top marks from me. Singer Carrie Underwood looked very wintery at the Concer for Valor in Washington DC. Carrie paired knee length boots with a full skirted coat and fluffy scarf. Once again, Angelina Jolie is featured on the Best Dressed list. Attending the London premiere of Unbroken, this time Angelina wore a beautiful white Ralph and Russo over the knee dress. My favourite [art of this look is the bolero cape. It’s perfect for winter and super elegant.

Best Dressed October 2014

Now that we are well out of the summer season I expected the October round up to be a dull, boring and wrapped up affair. How mistaken I was! Last month saw some great bright and floral looks across the red carpets and press call events. This month sees the first instalment of film premières that will undoubtedly be considered award-worthy. The only consolation to the dark days of winter is the upcoming red carpet events!

Blue and Silver

Reece Witherspoon, Gisele and Kate Middleton

Reece Witherspoon, Gisele and Kate Middleton

Reece Witherspoon, unwilling to acknowledge winter just yet, was spotted last month wearing a beautiful black, blue and white floral, feminine dress. Reece styled the look by sweeping her hair to the side in vintage Hollywood waves, a thin clutch and monochrome bowed shoes. Very cute, very summery! Gisele never fails to dazzle and her appearance at the Chanel No5 #TheOneThatIWant launch was no exception. Wearing a silver, slinky Chanel mini, Gisele showed off her fabulously tanned legs and was the star attraction at the event launching her career as the new Chanel Girl. Kate Middleton was photographed last month for the first time since her severe morning sickness as she expects Royal Baby No2. Kate wore a beautiful baby blue Jenny Packham dress with a thigh high front slit.I absolutely love Kate’s suede nude shoes, a nice break from the Staurt Weitzman’s that have been doing the rounds recently.

Nudes and Stripes

Hallie Berry, Jenna Coleman and Amal Almuddin

Halle Berry, Jenna Coleman and Amal Almuddin

 Actress Halle Berry was photographed at the Golden Heart Awards in New York City.The star, who is working with designer Michael Kors to stop world hunger was wearing a white, tea length dress with dark blue neck and waist trim by the designer to the event. Dr Who’s assistant Jenna Coleman turned heads at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood where she attended a pre-Britannia Awards party. Jenna paired her browny-nude long sleeved sheer top with a subtle sequenced skirt and matching nude shoes, topping off the elegant look with a box clutch. Perfection! Everyone’s favourite newly-wed Amal Alamuddin was back to her day job last month. Pictured in Greece, Amal wore an uber-stylish green striped and white dress wich she matched with a practical handbag and great pair of shoes.

Dressed in Black

Jessica Alba, Catherine Jenkins and Selena Gomez

Jessica Alba, Catherine Jenkins and Selena Gomez

Jessica Alba attended the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am opening ceremony in China last month. Jessica wore a black Emilio Pucci jumpsuit to the event, with a studded halter neck. However, I’m not sold on the Giuseppe Zanotti shoes… Welsh singing sensation Catherine Jenkins stunned in a sparkling, strapless floor length gown  by Suzanne Neville. The minimal jewels and amazing hair-do make this a winning look for me. Unleashing her inner Olivia Pope, Selena Gomez stepped out in LA during October in a gorgeous form fitting lace ensemble. I love the belt detailing. A very sophisticated and grown-woman look by Miss Gomez.

Casual Chicas

Victoria Beckham, Nicki Reed and Christe Brinkley

Victoria Beckham, Nicki Reed and Christe Brinkley

Running to a from her new London store, Victoria Beckham was papped wearing a pair of skinny ripped jeans, black suede boots and coordinating green top and jacket. Topped off with her signature glasses, Victoria can dress down to odd time! Nicki Reed was also papped last month. Leaving the airport, Nicki was seen wearing brown boots, a long flowy blue and gold dress acessorised with a stylish black hat, leather jacket and handbag. American model and actress Christie Brinkley was pictured at a Hamptons event last month looking dressed down to perfection. I love her chic camel coat and hat and Burberry bag. This is a great winter inspiration look as her printed trousers are bang on trend.

It was all Yellow

amie King, Blake Lively and Jessica Chastain

Jamie King, Blake Lively and Jessica Chastain

Jamie King and a very pregnant Blake Lively glowed together on the redcarpet as they attened an event hosted by Michael Kors. And, yes, you guessed it… both are wearing Michael Kors. Jamie wore a birght yellow dress, a rarity for her, while Blake wore a full length blue and nude sequenced dress. Jessica Chastain was spotted last month. Looking like a Grecian Goddess in this yellow Givenchy dress. I love the halter neckline and jewel detailing. The gold belt ties the look seamlessly together.

Stylish Trios

Bee, Michael Kors, Anna Wintour, Eddie Redmaune, Lily Collins, Ben Barnes

Bee, Michael Kors, Anna Wintour, Eddie Redmaune, Lily Collins, Ben Barnes

Anna Wintour and her daughter, Bee attended the Michael Kors God’s Love We Deliver 2014 Golden Heart Awards. Both ladies opted for floral designs while Mr Kors kept it classic in a black suit and tie. Meanwhile in Hollywood at the Vanity Fair and Burberry BAFTA party, Eddie Redmayne, Lily Collins and Ben Barnes posed for photos together. Burberry model Eddie wore a wine suit tailored suit with white shirt and baby blue tie, a surprising buy stylish combo. Lily looked girl in a white checked flowy skirt and crop top while Ben opted for a grey suit with a casually buttoned light blue shirt.

Best Dressed September 2014

Incase you missed it… George Clooney got married! As always, Mr Clooney wore Armani but his gorgeous wife Amal stepped out in a variety of beautiful designer outfits for us to drool over. Including the wedding of the year, so far, September was also unofficial Fashion Month. With runways and front rows brimming with style and sophistication Paris, New York and Milan brought loads of desirable styles to the fore. Film festivals and film premières topped of the red carpet looks featured in this months best dressed list.

Amal Alamuddin aka Mrs Clooney

Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney’s wedding weekend, Stella McCartney, Oscar de la Renta and Giambattista Valli

After what can only be described as a fairytale wedding and weekend in Italy, Amal Alamuddin became the most talked about bride of the year.  Amal wore a stunning lace Oscar de la Renta gown for her intimate ceremony. I am in love with the neckline of this dress. The off the shoulder detailing is extremely elegant and flattering. Amal was also pictured looking like a movie star in a white and navy Stella McCartney trouser, top and hat combo. To top off a fabulous weekend of outfits Amal showed off her endless legs in a floral appliqué and laceGiambattista Valli dress. Swoon!

C’est Chic

Amanda Holden, SJP and Allison Williams

Amanda Holden, SJP and Allison Williams

Amanda Holden arrived at Claridges hotel last month is an over the knee black and white dress, paired with thin-strapped black shoes. Amanda accessorized with a chic hair do and black clutch. Sarah Jessica Parker attended the Gareth Pugh presentation in NYC in a vibrant, also over the knee, printed dress. SJP finished the look with pointed silver heels. Also in pointed heels, actress Allison Williams looked like the bell of the ball as she attended the DVF NYC show. Does this girl every get it wrong? I love the checked grey detailing. I think if Dorothy ever made it from Kansas to NYC fashion week, she would be definitely wear this dress.

All Black, Everything

Toni Garen, Allison Williams and Reece Witherspoon

Toni Garen, Allison Williams and Reece Witherspoon

Model Toni Garen wore an interesting layered black dress to a Nars launch event in NYC. I really like the vertical panel detailing on the corset which extends into a sheer skirt with horizontal strips. Allison Williams features again in another great outfit from NYC last month. This time Allison wore a tea length skirt and crop top by Vionnet with a white collar and waist band trim. Reece Withersppon attended the Toronto Film Festival for the screening of her latest flick, Wild. Reece wore a black Saint Laurent dress with a cute flowy skater skirt, off the shoulder detailing and sparkly side panel.

Film Festival Frocks

Cara Delevigne, Jessica Chastain and Kate Beckinsale

Cara Delevigne, Jessica Chastain and Kate Beckinsale

Cara Delevigne walked the not-so-red-red-carepet at the Toronto Film Festival in a full length striped green dress with a gold belt. I love this look on Cara. The multiple shades of green work well with her skin tone and hair and her makeup is classically beautiful. Kate Beckinsale, also at the Toronto Film Festival, wore a strapless nude-pink jumpsuit with subtle wrap detailing at the bust with an odd but workable piece of fabric stemming from the waist. Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain was honoured at the Deauville American Film Festival. Jessica wore a heavily embroidered Oscar de la Renta pink over the knee dress with spiky Louboutains.

Red and Silver Combos

Emily Ratajkowski, Rosie Huntington Whitley and Gwen Stefani

Did someone say Jessica Rabbit? Wow! Emily Ratajkowski attended the Gone Girl world premiere in a simply stunning red SAFiYAA dress. The minimal hair and no jewellery add to the elegance and simplicity of this look. My favourite look from last month by far! Rosie Huntington-Whitley stunned in silver as she attended the Stuart Weirzman event in Paris while Gwen Stefani wore a red power suit  with white top as she was papped between work commitments. The printed Louboutains add some fun to this work wear.

Let me know who your favourite from last month was!

Best Dressed May 2014

May is always an exciting month for fashion. The summer season trends are becoming more prevalent and prestigious summer events are kicking off to display these trends. The red carpet was rolled out once more for the annual Cannes Film Festival which brought glamour galore to the shores of France.The Met Gala in NYC saw a vast array of fashionable and whacky outfit to the most famous steps in New York. Of course, there were numerous parties and press calls to satisfy our couture appetite.

Cannes Film Festival Appearances 

Jessica Hart, Jordan Dunn, Jessica Chastain and Rosie Huntington-Whitely

Jessica Hart, Jordan Dunn, Jessica Chastain and Rosie Huntington-Whitely

Australian model Jessica Hart looked beachy beautiful in a soft pasel pink dress. The material of this dress looks amazing and Jessica makes it look comfy. Pairing down her hair and makeup, a look for these events I don’t usually like, Jessica makes it work. Model of the moment Jordan Dunn made me green with envy in this Ellie Sabb mini. Not a dress I would usually associate with Ellie Sabb, this embellished emerald green dress, cinched at the wait with a belt is a perfect option for the World Music Awards. The gold shoes finish off the look. Actress Jessica Chastain walked the redcarpet at Cannes to promote her latest film ‘Foxcatcher’. The purple Ellie Sabb Coture dress looked like a Grecian goddess and fairy princess combined as her dress blew in the wind along the carpet. Jessica never disappoints! Rosie Huntington-Whitely donned a bright yellow Emilio Pucci dress during her stay in Cannes. The model works a dress that I think many would struggle to.

Blake Lively, Cannes Redcarpet Queen

Blake Lively, Cannes Redcarpet Queen

Every year or redcarpet season there is a stand out. This year the title of Cannes best dressed lady goes to Blake Lively. Renowned for her impeccable self-styling, Blake stole the show at Cannes, attending the festival with husband Ryan Reynolds to promote his film ‘Captives’. Opening night of the festival at the ‘Grace of Monaco’ premier, Blake wore a blood red Gucci Première floor length gown. The dress featured a thigh skimming split and geometric neck. Blake accessorised with stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewellery and equally fab Casadei shoes. While I love this dress, Blake had her best ‘fashion moment’ attending the ‘Captives’ premier with Ryan. This is by far my favourite look of Blake’s and the month. The couple looked old school glamorous, both in Gucci. Wearing her hair in a massive but classy bun to the back of her head Blake styled the dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a red lip. Taking a break from Gucci and the redcarpet Blake then wore a short white embellished Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture number. Making her legs even longer, Blake donned  Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals which I really, really, really want! The final look in this montage is of Blake in a Chanel Couture dress attending the ‘Mr Turner’ premier. Keeping her hair down in a messy curls Blake topped off her look with massive rings once again by Lorraine Schwartz.

Robert Pattinson, Ryan Gosling and Matt Smith

Robert Pattinson, Ryan Gosling and Matt Smith

Despite looking like he would rather not be there, Robert Pattinson attended Cannes photocall starring in two films featuring in the festival, ‘The Rover’ and ‘Maps to the Stars’. Robert wore a green blazer, with black shoes and top combined with denim jeans. I like this style on him as we don’t often see the actor too dressed up. Ryan Gosling made the carpet go crazy as he steeped out to promote his film ‘Lost River’ Ryan wore simple brown trousers and a white shirt with scuffed boots. Former DR Who, Matt Smith flew in for the event looking very French chic and preppy. I love his boat shoes and navy chino combo with light blue shirt and tweed jacket.

Quite all White

Katherine Mc Phee, Cate Blanchett, Miranda Kerr

Katherine Mc Phee, Cate Blanchett and Miranda Kerr

Actress and singer Katherine McPhee wore a white laced detailed dress last month attending a CBS television event. Katherine wore trendy white shoes and showed off her blonder, shorter hair, leaving it in messy curls. Oscar winner Cate Blanchett wore a white dress as she attended an event at Windsor castle. This is the perfect dress to attend to meet the future King of England. I loved the sculpted shoulder and the sophisticated hair. An Oscar winner worthy dress! Miranda Kerr, a regular on this list every month, wore a printed white and floral dress in Sydney promoting her Kora skincare range. The only fault I can find with this look are the shoes.

Jess Weixler, Jennifer Lawrence and Natasha Poly

Jess Weixler, Jennifer Lawrence and Natasha Poly

The Good Wife actress, Jess Weixler made waves on the redcarpet at Cannes in this flowing, soft white dress. I love the way this dress sits and the blue floral detailing on the neck. Jess matched her hair to the dress in a soft updo and added some bling with a diamond ring and earrings. Everyone’s favourite, Jennifer Lawrence made an appearance in Cannes wearing a short Dior shirt and crop top. Natasha Poly wore an amazing Vionnet dress. The plunging neckline and tight bodice make way for a floating skirt which on close inspection matches the material of the bodice.

Black Beauties 

Jessica Chastain, Cara Delevigne, Lily James and Nicki Minaj

Jessica Chastain, Cara Delevigne, Lily James and Nicki Minaj

Jessica Chastain features again this month because, let’s face it, she knows how to dress. I really like this black Givenchy dress. Sometimes black can be harsh on someone as pale as Jessica but the bodice detailing and the skirt on this dress are far from harsh. The soft hair added to the elegance of the overall look. Cara Delevinge and Lily James both wore black as they attended Windsor Castle. Cara wore a tight black dress with grey, almost floral detailing, on the bodice while Lily wore a grey feathered dress fading to black at the hips. Nicki Minaj is almost unreocgnisable these days. Pairing down her look, make-up and hair wise anyways, Nicki wore a black cut out dress at the Billboard Music Awards. I have to admit, I prefer this new look even though her facial expression suggests she isn’t too happy with it!

Kendal Jenner, Amal Alamuddin and Karlie Kloss

Kendall Jenner, Amal Alamuddin and Karlie Kloss

Kendall Jenner made her Cannes début in at the ‘Grace of Monaco’ première in a black and white Chanel Resort dress.  Wearing those Stuart Wiseman ‘nudist’ shoes that everyone wants in black the only fault is the hair. The 3D effect on the bodice of Kendall’s dress reminds me of the dress Isabel Lucas wore last month. A polished and well pulled off look by the 18 year old.  George Clooney’s finace Amal Alamuddin was papped in London laving the hairdressers during May. I love the class and elegance of this black and white look. The sophisticated combo of black and white is amped up with massive sunnies and the amazing hairdo! Exactly what I’d expect a lawyer engaged to George to look like. Karlie Kloss also wore black and white last month in NYC. I love the wrapped detail of the silk top!

The Met Gala

David and Victoria, Karolina Kurkova

David and Victoria, Karolina Kurkova

Every year fashion’s finest come out in droves to celebrate on the Met steps in NYC. David and Victoria walked up the steps together in matching outfits. Victoria in one of her own creations and David in Ralph Lauren. Super stylish! Karolina Kurkova wowed in a massive Marchesa gown. Usually, I’m surprised at myself for loving this gown as much as I do. I think the huge structured skirt and neckline is amazing and perfect for the occasion. the hair a jewellery is simple but effective. One of my favourite looks from this years Met!

Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevigne, Selena Gomez

Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevigne, Selena Gomez

Kendall and Cara feature again as their looks were too good to leave out. Kendall wore a Topshop dress at her first Met ball. I love that Kendall opted for an elegant hairdo to show off her dress. She has had a great ‘fashion’ month in my books. Cara also didn’t disappoint in a black and white. Selena Gomez, also making her Met début wore a gorgeous purple DVF gown with Lorrain Schwartz jewels. I wasn’t mad about her hair from the back but I’m sure many will be copying her classy make-up and hair.

Let me know who made your best dressed list from May!

Best Dressed January 2014

Whhooweee! What a crazy month January was for celebrity fashion. The Golden Globes, The Grammy Awards, The National Television Awards and various film and TV critic lunches and cocktail parties have left us with loads of fashion to drool over.

Trend Alert: Yellow

Angelina Rose Olivia Munn Lupita Nyong'o

Angelina Rose Olivia Munn Lupita Nyong’o

Yellow has been everywhere this red carpet season. While it has yet to have an outing on any major awards red carpets I’m sure we might see it throughout the spring season.  Angelina Rose wore a prom-esque short yellow dress with a broach inspired design on the side. The Newsroom actress Olivia Munn wore a bright Victoria Beckham halter dress with matching white shoes and clutch, which I love, and this seasons It Girl, Lupitia Nyong’o wore a low cut yellow number with cute shoes to promote her Oscar Nominated Film 12 Years A Slave.

Block Colours

Anna Kendrick Dita Von Tease Jessica Chastain

Anna Kendrick Dita Von Tease Jessica Chastain

Anna Kendrick looked lovely in Reem Acra at the Unicef 2014 Ball. The sheer lace keyhole cutouts are stylish, on trend and add an extra edge to an otherwise plain gown. Dita Von Tease kept it elegant in puple and Jessica Chastain wore Nina Ricci to the Critic Choice Movie Awards. Doesn’t it slightly resemble the Gucci number Luptita wore to the SAG Awards?

Zosia Mamet Nina Dobrev Naomie Harris

Zosia Mamet Nina Dobrev Naomie Harris

Girls actress Zosia Mamet has never looked better. I love this Elizabetta Franchi combo that she wore to promote Girls Season 3 in London.  On the opposite end of the colour spectrum, Nina Dobrev donned an orange embellished gown at the Art of Elysuim Heaven Gala. Naomie Harris continues her run of amazing dresses in this Naeem Kham sheer lace white dress which she wore to the Palm Springs International Film Awards.

Gold and Silver

Alison Williams Jessica Alba Lupita Nyong'o

Alison Williams Jessica Alba Lupita Nyong’o

The ever stylish Alison Williams didn’t disappoint in an interesting mullet style Osman dress which she wore at the third annual Sean Penn Haiti fundraiser event.

Helen Mirren Lupita Nyong'o Odette Annable

Singer Katy Perry took music to the red carpet in a white fullskirt Valentino gown which was definitely appropriate for the occasion. Superhuman Beyonce wore a white sheer Michael Costello gown which looks like it could have inspired by Adam and Eve. Paired with a bold lip and messy Hair B looked amazing as usual. Iggy Azalea looked elegant in an Ellie Sabb number, the best I think she has looked at an event for a long time.

Christie Teigan wearing Johanna Johnson, Ciara and Taylor Swift in Gucci gowns

Christie Teigen wearing Johanna Johnson, Ciara and Taylor Swift in Gucci gowns

Newly married Christe Teigen wore a Johanna Johnson metallic number to support her husband John Legend on the red carpet. Keeping with the metallic theme Ciara showed off her babybump in a stunning Gucci dress with mini pool train. The detail on this dress is incredible and Ciara looks like a superstar wearing it. Taylor Swift, also in Gucci, took a break from her girly dresses and opted for a chain detail floor length dress, keeping her hair and jewellery simple to compliment her look.

As always, I’d love to know who you thought looked best during the month of January!

New Year’s Beauty Inspiration

As 2014 fast approaches there is no better time to draw some inspiration from the best celebrity makeup looks of the last twelve months. If you’re heading to a party, hosting a party, or simply going out on the town to countdown to midnight on December 31st, what better way than with a great makeup look?

Classic Smokey Eye

Jennifer Lawrence Frida Pinto Cara Delevigne MakeupA classic smokey eye never fails to impress. This look can be worn with a darker lip like Jennifer, Lawrence and Frida Pinto demonstrate. If you prefer a more toned down look but still want a smokey eye, Rachel Weiz minimized the eye liner on her lower lash line but went for a defined brow and berry lip.Rachel Weiz Kerry Washington Heidi Klum MakeupKerry Washington and Heidi Klum opted for a nude lip but heavily lined top and bottom lash line. Heavily lined upper and inner rims, lots of mascara and a bright inner corner are essential for this look.

A Bold Lip

The perfect way to stand out this festive season is to adopt a bold lip colour. Tread with caution when wearing this look. You don’t want to look like a clown with massive red lips! Pair a bold burgundy lip with neutral eye makeup like Miranda Kerr.Clare Danes Miranda Kerr Kerry Washington Jessica Chastain Makeup Ditching the false lashes when you’re going for a dark lip is a good idea. If you’re feeling brave, try a glittery copper eye like Clare Danes. If burgundy isn’t your colour, Kerry Washington and Jessica Chastain paired their berry lips with neutral eyes but false lashes on the outer corners of their eyes for some definition.

A Dramatic LookAmanda Seyfried Taylor Swift Jessica Alba Makeup

For a head turning look this New Year, thick heavy eye liner and dramatic false lashes are sure to grab anyone’s attention. Amanda Seyfried paired her heavy eyeliner and falsies with bronzed lids, pink shiny lips and a natural cheek colour. Taylor Swift wore a similar style but with less dramatic lashes and liner. Taylor decided on a more bronzed eye look and continued it onto the lower lash line. She also with a matte natural pink lip. Stepping away from the bronzed and copper tones, Jessica Alba worked a shimmery metallic lid, highlighted her inner corners and spread it out to the outer corner on the under eye area which photographed nicely. Jessica lined her lower waterline and topped off her look with bold false lashes and again, a pale lip colour. Jessica also went for a dewy finish with her foundation in comparison to Amanda and Taylor. This is completely optional and down to personal preference.

NaturalKate Bosworth Angelina Jolie Sienna Miller Makeup

If you prefer to keep your look natural or don’t wear makeup on a regular basis you don’t have to go OTT to look elegant and sophisticated. Kate Bosworth shows that a lined upper rim, lashings of mascara and a warm berry lip and cheek make natural super chic. Angelina Jolie makes minimal makeup uber-glamorous with a heavy thick line on the outer corners of her lid, gradually fading and thinning towards her inner corner. Natural false lashes on the outer corner, no bottom lash mascara and a subtle fade and blend between the bottom and top liner on the outer corner connect the two lines. Subtly lined lips with a hint of gloss, finish off the look. Sienna Miller also goes for a natural lid this time with no liner or falsies.  Coats of mascara on the top lashes and minimal coats on the bottom lashes in company with a defined brow and pale lip is the most elegant way to achieve this minimal look.Rosie Huntington Whitely Beyonce Clare Danes Makeup

However, you can still do a natural and make it interesting. Rosie Huntington Whitely used black kohl liner on her top and inner waterline with a tiny, subtle wing at the outer corners. Beyoncé also wore this look but added some darker shadows on her lids. Her highlighted cheeks and arched brows set off the look. Clare Danes wears a natural red lip with a hint of glitter on her eyelids with mascara on her top lashes only.

Have a look at my previous post The Best of YouTube Makeup to recreate these looks at home.

I’d love to know your favourite beauty party looks and of course, which look you’re planning on wearing during 2014.
